Or anyone know of brighter ones?

Are you looking to replace the inner beam or the side lights? For the inner beam, you can use an H3 hyperwhite bulb to upgrade the color.

Hi Nick

I'm looking to replace the inner small parking LED lights that come on when you turn the light switch round ONE notch.

They are like the small lights in the pic of the Audi so you leave them on when you park and people can see your car.

I have already installed OSRAM H7 Nightbreakers for the others.

Thanks!

EDIT: Exactly Part #9 on here on REALOEM

I must say daylight visibility of these parking lights is close to nothing, but they look great at night

Thanks.

The nightbreaker bulbs you mean? They are better than stock but I would love xenons+Angel eyes.

The led bulbs provide about 0 visibility, they just look nice especially at night/dusk.
